Vikings At Packers Score Update: Packers Lead 17-0 At Halftime

The Packers scored in three very different ways and the Vikings did not score at all. And it is only halftime at Lambeau Field, where Green Bay is enjoying Monday Night Football much more than Minnesota with a 17-0 lead.

In the first quarter, Randall Cobb returned a punt for a touchdown the first time Green Bay touched the ball, Aaron Rodgers hooked up with Greg Jennings for the seventh time this season to complete an 11-play, 70-yard touchdown drive, and Mason Crosby kicked an easy 25-yard field goal early in the second quarter. Neither team scored during the final 12 minutes of the first half.

Minnesota has not been able to stop Green Bay's passing attack, as Rodgers is 13-16 with 145 yards and a touchdown. Meanwhile, Christian Ponder is 9-17 for 102 yards and an interception.

To recap, here is how Minnesota's offensive drives ended in the first half: punt, punt, missed field goal (52 yards), interception, punt, punt (hence the "dancing" Packers fans above).

On a mildly bright note for the Vikings, Jared Allen racked up five tackles and was able to find his way to Aaron Rodgers, earning credit for one sack – the official scorer took away another -- and pushing his season total to 14. Michael Strahan holds the all-time record with 22.5 sacks.
